Swedish engineering consultancy Sweco has opened a new Manchester office after taking 5,582 sq ft at Abbey House on Booth Street.
The Stockholm-headquartered firm, which has 14 regional offices throughout the UK, has agreed a five-year lease.
Sweco and its 40-strong tream will be based on the fourth floor of the city centre office building.
The company has consolidated two offices as part of the move, with the majority relocating from their previous base at Manchester Airport.
The transaction was secured by Avison Young on behalf of Booth Street Property Company.
Existing occupiers at the building located on the corner of Booth Street and Mosley Street include Gleeds, Chubb Insurance and Mathys and Squire.
Harry Skinner, senior surveyor at Avison Young, says: “Abbey House has been completely repositioned to provide Grade A office space with exceptional facilities.
“We are pleased to see this investment is already paying dividends with the arrival of Sweco, and with further space under offer we look forward to making further announcements soon.”
Lambert Smith Hampton is joint letting agent for Abbey House.
